But as they say, “All good things must end.”Now that Thanksgiving Break is over, high school basketball will get going hot and heavy from now until the Christmas Break.Poteau, Arkoma, Pocola and Talihina will begin their seasons tonight, while Heavener, Panama and Spiro will begin their seasons later this week.So, let the hoop-la begin.ScheduleTonightPoteau at Citizens Bank Classic in Van Buren, Ark., girls vs. Shiloh Christian, 4 p.m.; boys vs. Van Buren, Ark., 8:30 p.m.Gans at Arkoma, 6:30 and 8 p.m.Bokoshe at Kinta, 6:30 and 8 p.m.Pocola at Stigler, 6:30 and 8 p.m.Talihina at Antlers, 6:30 and 8 p.m.Wister at McCurtain, 6:30 and 8 p.m.Thursday NightPoteau at Citizens Bank Classic, in Van Buren, Ark., TBA.Heavener at Spiro, 6:30 and 8 p.m.Pocola at Panama, 6:30 and 8 p.m.Keota at Bokoshe, 6:30 and 8 p.m.Arkoma at Webbers Falls, 6:30 and 8 p.m.Leflore at McCurtain, 6:30 and 8 p.m.Wister at Smithville, 6:30 and 8 p.m.Friday NightPoteau at Citizens Bank Classic, in Van Buren, Ark., TBA.Wister at Cameron, 6:30 and 8 p.m.Whitesboro at Buffalo Valley, 6:30 and 8 p.m.Howe at Keota, 6:30 and 8 p.m.Leflore at Calvin, 6:30 and 8 p.m.Spiro at Stilwell, 6:30 and 8 p.m.Saturday NightPoteau at Citizens Bank Classic, in Van Buren, Ark., TBA.Panama at Porum, 4 and 5:30 p.m.Monday NightBokoshe, Cameron, Leflore and Whitesboro at Eastern Oklahoma State College Classic, at Wilburton and Red Oak, TBA.Panama at Greenleaf Tournament in Braggs, TBA.
